In China, Schisandra berries (Schisandra chinensis) are called wuweizi, which means “five flavor fruit,” as they contain all five essential flavors in Chinese herbal medicine: salty, sweet, sour, pungent, and bitter. These berries are one of the 50 fundamental herbs in Chinese medicine.
Schisandra contains a wide variety of helpful compounds, including essential oils, numerous acids, lignans, phytosterols as well as Vitamins C and E. The lignans activate enzymes in liver cells that produce the antioxidant glutathione, which may support healthy liver function.
Schisandra is an adaptogen, meaning it supports the body’s own natural functions to help resist internal and external stressors. It provides support for healthy blood circulation and kidney function, as well as enhancing strength and energy levels and improving concentration. Schisandra can also support healthy gastrointestinal activity and contribute to good vision and hearing. It is used to soothe anxiety, assist with sleep, and help maintain overall wellbeing.*
